We were commissioned by Universal Everything to collaborate on a global animation projected on one of the world’s most iconic building, the Sydney Opera house. Universal Everything teamed up 20 studios from all around the world and gave everyone a keyword. Each studio was free to perform in his own way.

Our keyword was "BOOM". So, we decided to collaborate with several artists who each, created a 5-seconds cell animation explosion. Then, these modules were used as assets, merged and edited in a 30 seconds dynamic sequence which highlights the building facade.


For Universal Everything, the hand drawn techniques seen in this film are akin to the early pioneers of animation Len Lye, Norman McLaren and Walt Disney. Using these timeless techniques mean this film could have been existed in 1920, albeit with a 21st century twist - bringing our influences of global pop culture, modernist graphics and physics simulations into a playful exploration of this iconic building.
